Greetings to all. I'm so happy I found this wonderful on-line resource. I'm sure the experts on board will help us avoid plenty of mistakes and help guide us down that huge RV pathway!
It all started with a plan to visit many of our terrific National Parks across the country. My wife just retired and I'm planning to retire next year so we thought we would "practice up" before the BIG trip. Last summer we purchased a tow trailer and after our first camping weekend we decided a motorhome would better suit our plan. So, last fall we sold the camper and purchased a 36' 2000 HR Endeavor and we just finished our first camping trip over Easter weekend. It went very well and we were so impressedwith the convenience offsetting up and taking down. Driving was not as bad as I expected. Staying between lines takes some getting used to and watching that tail swing requires attention, too.
We already bought a Roadway tow bar on CraigsList and just today bought a 2002 Honda CR-V. I'll be looking for some advice on brake systems.
Anyway, sorry for rambling on and on.... we're going to practice much this summer and next getting ready for the BIG trip. If all goes well we really take to the motorhome route we may choose to upgrade to a later model diesel.
Regards to all.
